From SD#8: 11:30pm, May 29, 2017
Crawford Bay, BC
On May 29, 2017 at 2:33 pm Creston RCMP were contacted by an official with Crawford Bay School to report one of the school’s teachers as missing.
Dunic went on a hike near the Kokanee Springs Golf Course just before noon and had yet to return.
Creston RCMP activated an aerial search, the local Search & Rescue Team, and the RCMP dog team section out of Nelson.
The teacher’s vehicle was located on scene and unlocked. Two area teachers assisted in the search prior to police arrival. Golf course staff also assisted in the search.
By nightfall the search obtained no results. The search is continuing
School is open with supports in place for students and staff. We will be communicating directly with parents/caregivers and students. Any further questions should be directed to SD 8 superintendent Mr. Jeff Jones.
The RCMP is urging people to stay out of the area and not to try to search for the missing teacher. They need the scene free of people as to not contaminate possible tracks for search dogs and evidence that might help in finding the teacher.
